We have a dream

You could help us realise it

Ashwini Charitable Trust (ACT) a non governmental organisation educates and empowers underprivileged children from urban slums in Bangalore. Our mission is to educate and empower underprivileged children and support them till they are gainfully employed.
ACT is a growing organisation in every way: we began on 1st April 2000 with 9 children and now have 360 children with us as of 2019-2020. When we began, education meant paying the children's fees and helping them improve their study skills. Now, the education that every child at ACT gets is an all-round development programme that ensures every child's physical, mental and emotional Wellness.
ACT has recently started Satellite Centers in Indiranagar and Murphy Town supporting 300 more children from Government aided and semi aided schools. ACT is run completely by volunteers.

When I think of Ashwini Trust, Smile is the word that comes to my mind. The glittering little eyes filled with promise and confidence. The enthusiasm in the children to learn and grasp the knowledge. I feel ACT emphasis the fact that imparting Education at the right time is the key towards building a better world. It’s a great feeling to be associated with the journey towards reconciliation and enlightenment. - ACT Volunteer
I came to Ashwini Charitable Trust in the year 2003 when I was in VII standard. Ashwini has done many things for us - they pay fees, give school books, bags, take us for trips and the volunteers of the Trust teach us many subjects like Maths, English Grammar, Science etc. I can speak boldly in front of others, I have come to know many people from the corporate world. ACT has aslo created a bank account in my name so that I can deposit money in the bank. They also sent me for computer classes and now I can work on a computer confidently. ACT has done so much for me that I cannot express it in words. It is because of this Trust I got to study in a big college like St. Joseph’s College of Commerce, Bengaluru - Lakshmi B I B. Com.

The ACT family – includes sponsors, trustees, volunteers, children, their parents et al with every attempt of theirs make me strongly believe in “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it...” It’s a benevolent work of charity and blessed are thy children. - ACT Supporter
